The company Akku-Batteriehandel Nord (ABH-Nord) made a heavy donation on Wednesday, April 22, 2020, on the Kiel campus of the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein: The Batterie24.de company transporter had loaded 24 vehicle batteries for the UKSH fleet. The batteries have a total value of around 2,400 euros and together weigh around half a ton.
"Our intensive care and ambulance vehicles are equipped with extensive, partly vital technology, so that a reliable power supply from the vehicle batteries is very important here," said Malte Beth, team assistant transport logistics at the service company of the UKSH. "In this respect, we are very happy and grateful for this donation."
"In times of crisis we want to help where it is most needed and find a way to move closer together despite social distancing," said Ann-Christine Sebesteny, Marketing Manager at Batterie24.de. This intention gave the sparkling thoughts to contact the UKSH. The managing directors Jörg Kieback and Patrick Buttig unanimously decided: "We want to donate where it helps the people affected and protects our health."
ABH-Nord, based in Flintbek, operates the online platform Batterie24.de. Specifically, in-kind donation to the UKSH Friends and Friends Association in favor of the UKSH subsidiary Service Stern Nord included twelve Varta batteries for installation in Ford Transit patient transport vehicles, six Varta batteries for Mercedes Benz Sprinter intensive care vehicles and six Varta batteries for Mercedes Benz Atego material transportation truck.
